PIP+ Transparent zooms
Posted: 09 Mar 2006 07:54 PM
Here is a modification of previously reported undocumented aspect of PIP Plus (install this first) that if you dont specify a background parameter it doesnt clear it.

Transparent Zoom Effects
Transparent Zoom Transition


Here is the code:

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0" >
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="{0BEDE179-3361-4eea-9058-11CBB1739D50}">
<Effect name="PIP+ Zoom In transparent" iconid="0">
<Param name="RectA" value=" 0.0, 0.4,0.4,0.2,0.2 ;
0.1, 0.4,0.4,0.2,0.2,0.0,0.2 ;
0.9, 0.0,0.0,1.0,1.0,0.0,0.2 ;
1.0, 0.0,0.0,1.0,1.0,0.0,1.0" />
</Effect>
<Effect name="PIP+ Zoom Out transparent" iconid="0">
<Param name="RectA" value=" 0.0, 0.0,0.0,1.0,1.0,0.0,0.2 ;
0.9, 0.4,0.4,0.2,0.2,0.0,0.2 ;
1.0, 0.4,0.4,0.2,0.2,0.0,1.0" />
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
<Transitions>
<TransitionDLL guid="{4EF98DF5-794F-4fd3-8E77-559F82C8D10C}">
<Transition name="PIP+ Transparent Zoom " iconid="0">
<Param name="RectA" value=" 0.0, 0.0,0.0,1.0,1.0,1.0,0.2 ;
0.45, 0.4,0.4,0.2,0.2,1.0,0.2 ;
0.5, 0.4,0.4,0.2,0.2,1.0,1.0 ;
0.6, 0.4,0.4,0.2,0.2,0.0,0.0" />
<Param name="RectB" value=" 0.0, 0.4,0.4,0.2,0.2,0.0,0.0 ;
0.4, 0.4,0.4,0.2,0.2,0.0,0.0 ;
0.5, 0.4,0.4,0.2,0.2,1.0,0.2 ;
0.95, 0.0,0.0,1.0,1.0,0.0,0.2 ;
1.0, 0.0,0.0,1.0,1.0,0.0,1.0" />
</Transition>
</TransitionDLL>
</Transitions>
</TransitionsAndEffects>


After installing PIP+, copy paste the above xml code into notepad and Save As pipplus_tspzoom.xml in folder C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX. Confirm the file has .xml extension by turning off the "hide extensions of known file types" from Explorer > Tools > Folder options > View. Restart WMM.

I see there are 7 seperate numbers per line - I want to make a new transition from the one given so it does the opposite to this, to have it zoom right in and then fade and zoom back out quickly. But I need to know what all the numbers mean again...I assume first number in each line is time, the next 4 being position and clip size. So what are the rest?

Sorry for ignorant post...

Thanks Rehan - bit tough to take in at first but I guess you just gotta dive in there and experiment until you get a result!

Rehan those are awesome! I see you're still working without using the background parameter. But you did some more experimenting...
